  • SimCity 4 Is Still Great

    SimCity 4 is a spreadsheet that will never be balanced, but that’s what makes it so fun, even 14 years after release.

    Yesterday, an article about SimCity 4's Network Addon Mod, a comprehensive mod for roads and traffic in SimCity 4, reached the front page of r/Games.”Not only has SimCity 4 survived, it has thrived with new creations offered daily by content-makers, and has even evolved with substantial player-developed modifications like the Network Addon Mod,” author Dirktator wrote. While that’s definitely true, and the thriving mod community for SimCity 4 is a joy to browse through, after playing until two in the morning I can safely say that SimCity 4 also holds up on its own.

    So in summary, SC4 is still an active community since the release of NAM?

    NAM was first released on 2004, with the latest version released in 2016 (Version 35).

    While the NAM has been a cornerstone it is by no means the only activity that has kept SC4 alive. Just look at the variety of buildings and textures not to mention the tools created to make new content.

    SC4 Represents to me a blank canvas that you can do virtually anything with given enough time ;)

    EA's finest hour.  Now if EA would only do the right thing and turn the source code over to the community everyone could move on and bring SC4 into the future.  If that would happen, SimCoug will still be smiling 15 years from now.

    I have moved on to Cities: Skylines, but SC4 will remain the greatest city builder game ever no matter what comes along.
